When a person on Oklahoma’s death row had an abscessed tooth, he was rushed to a dentist in town.
When another developed tonsillitis, he received immediate medical attention and antibiotics.
deputy warden explained that convicted persons sentenced to die have to
be in good health before they can be executed in Oklahoma. I thought
that odd. I noticed that most of the men on death row were in fine shape
physically. It seemed foolish to execute an entire person, all those
healthy organs and body parts going to waste. Could those folks donate
No. The lethal cocktail prepared and delivered into
executed persons' veins contaminates all their body parts: organs,
retinas, blood, even skin grafting possibilities.
fiction writers’ imaginations follow strange paths. That information and
my mental progressions, combined with a little romance––which I
consider to be to fiction as essential as salt to baked goods––produced
my last published novel, JINGO STREET. Another, with different
inspiration, is coming in March, 2017.
